New 72-bed hotel and spa planned for Ambleside

Springbourne Homes, who have purchased the former Kelsick Grammar School in Ambleside, are in discussions with the community and Lake District National Park Authority regarding construction of a new 72-bed hotel with spa and proposed rooftop terrace bar. The former Kelsick School has been disused for a considerable number of years and the intention is for part demolition and part new build on the site. Peill & Company acted jointly with Michael C L Hodgson of Kendal in acting on behalf of the University of Cumbria in the sale of the Kelsick School to Springbourne Homes.
